Join Christopher Larcos, lawyer/architect, as he presents the new ACA Short Form Architect Client Agreement. The Agreement was launched in May at a discussion event in Sydney and this webinar will open the forum to the rest of the nation.
Prepared by Christopher, on behalf of the ACA, the new agreement has been developed to provide a less cumbersome, but fair and balanced model contract for use on small to medium projects. The agreement consists of just three pages and a cover letter and has been approved by insurers Planned Cover.
To learn more, join us for the ACA Insight webinar when Christopher will discuss:
- The need for the new ACA Short Form Architect Client Agreement
- Key provisions of the agreement, and how they improve upon the corresponding provisions in the Institute client-architect agreement
- The importance of the cover letter, and how it should be filled out and customised
